This fresh-flavored clementine muffins recipe is easy to whip up on a busy day. These fragrant treats make a great breakfast with a cup of coffee or a light dessert on the go. French-style clementine yogurt muffins are best made when tiny clementines are in season, but taste great with standard oranges starring as a year-round substitute.
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes
Total Time: 40 minutes
Yield: 12 clementine muffins
- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/3 cup granulated sugar
- 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 cup butter, melted
- 1 cup yogurt
- 1 egg
- 1 tablespoon clementine zest
- 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 5 clementines, peeled and chopped
- Raw sugar for sprinkling
Preheat the oven to 350F.
Combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and baking soda. Whisk together the butter, yogurt, egg, zest, and vanilla. Stir the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients just until the flour mixture is moistened. Fold the chopped clementines into the batter.
Divide the batter between 12 paper-lined muffin cups, sprinkle with raw sugar, and bake for 25 to 30 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean. Transfer the muffins to a wire cooling rack.
This clementine muffins recipe makes 12 servings.
